Love that Old School, Lo-fi vibe!” - Don Letts

Don Letts "Culture Clash Radio" BBC6

Cassette Spotlight

May 9, 2024

We were sent these images of our "Dub Me Like That" album posted in the r/casetteculture page on Reddit yesterday.

We noticed that the original poster was (Analogue Media Technologies Inc.) - the fine people in Canada who made our tapes!

It's nice that Ten months post release we not only got an unexpected mention, but a nice little review as well. 

" Kansas City's Rougher All Stars present a spacey journey, full of reverb and perfectly adjusted delay, giving their dub rhythms a feeling of eternal existence. They reverberate from generation to generation, messages from the past and future "

We never really thought about anyone at the factory keeping or listening to a copy, but we're glad they liked it. (Thanks for sharing our Bandcamp page too!)

Also, we had great workings with them on our project - Highly recommend!

We're working on something new for release later this year. More on that soon...

Pick up one of these fine cassettes for yourself, or a shirt, hoodie, vinyl record, digital download, sticker or pin here --->

We are beyond words, honestly...
